    Bale wishes 'top guy' Ronaldo good luck after Juventus transfer

    Gareth Bale has wished "top guy" Cristiano Ronaldo good luck following the Portugal captain's move from Real Madrid to Juventus. Ronaldo agreed a four-year contract with the Serie A champions in a deal worth €112 million (£98.5m/$131m) that was announced on Tuesday. Madrid's all-time leading goalscorer leaves the club after winning the Champions League four times in the past five years. Bale was among those to use social media to bid farewell to the departing superstar, despite their reportedly uneasy relationship. "An incredible player and a top guy!" Bale wrote on Twitter.  "It has been a pleasure to play alongside you for the last five years. "Good luck for the future my friend." Brazil midfielder Casemiro was another to post a message in support of Ronaldo. "With you I learned, I enjoyed and I won," wrote Casemiro. "Thanks for everything, my friend."

    'Real Madrid has conquered my heart' - Ronaldo thanks fans in open letter

    Cristiano Ronaldo thanked Real Madrid for an "absolutely wonderful" nine years at the club after revealing the time was right to start a new chapter of his illustrious career with Juventus. The Spanish giants released a statement to confirm they had accepted Ronaldo's request to move to Italy in a deal worth €100m (£88m/$117m) plus €12m (£10.5/$14m) in additional charges. The five-time Ballon d'Or winner said his farewells to Madrid in a letter published on the La Liga club's website. "These years at Real Madrid, and in this city of Madrid, have been possibly the happiest of my life," the 33-year-old said. "I only have feelings of enormous gratitude for this club, for this sport and for this city. I can only thank all of them for the love and affection I have received.  "However, I believe that the time has come to open a new stage in my life and that is why I have asked the club to accept transferring me. I feel that way and I ask everyone, and especially our followers, to please understand me.  "They have been absolutely wonderful for nine years. They have been nine unique years. It has been an exciting time for me, but also hard because Real Madrid is very demanding, but I know very well that I will never forget that I have enjoyed football here in a unique way. "I have had fabulous team-mates on the field and in the dressing room, I have felt the warmth of an incredible crowd and together we have won three Champions Leagues in a row - and four in five years. "Real Madrid has conquered my heart, and that of my family, and that is why more than ever I want to say thank you: thanks to the club, the president, the directors, my colleagues, all the technicians, doctors, physios and incredible workers that make everything work and that are pending every detail tirelessly. "Thank you infinitely once more to our fans, and thanks also to Spanish football. During these nine exciting years I have had great players in front of me. My respect and my recognition to all of them." Ronaldo became the world's most expensive player when he joined from Manchester United in 2009, going on to become Madrid's all-time leading scorer. Despite his impending departure, the Portugal international admitted he would never forget his time in Spain. "I have reflected a lot and I know that the time has come for a new cycle," he continued. "I'm leaving but this shirt, this badge and the Santiago Bernabeu will continue to always feel my own wherever I am.   "Thanks to all and, of course, as I said that first time in our stadium nine years ago: Hala Madrid!"

"Cristiano, your goals, your numbers and everything we've won together speak for themselves," Ramos wrote on Twitter.  "You have earned a special place in the history of Real Madrid.

    OFFICIAL: Cristiano Ronaldo agrees to join Juventus

    Real Madrid have confirmed Cristiano Ronaldo will leave the club to join Juventus. The Serie A champions swooped to sign the Portugal captain after he indicated that he was considering leaving Madrid after their Champions League final win in May. On Tuesday, Juventus president Andrea Agnelli flew from Pisa to Greece to meet Ronaldo, who is on holiday in Kalamata, and his agent Jorge Mendes arrived from England later on to join them. Ronaldo is said to have agreed a four-year contract that will see him pocket €30 million (£26.5m/$35m) per season and Madrid have since confirmed that they have allowed him to make the move to Turin in a transfer that will cost €100m (£88m/$117m) plus €12m (£10.5/$14m) in additional charges. “Real Madrid CF communicates that, in response to the will and request expressed by the player Cristiano Ronaldo, he has agreed to transfer to Juventus FC.” The announcement was followed by an open letter from Ronaldo, in which he thanked fans for their "love and affection" during his time there. Ronaldo, 33, reached global superstar status after becoming the world's most expensive player when he joined Madrid from Manchester United in 2009. During his nine-year spell at the Santiago Bernabeu, Ronaldo won 15 trophies, including two La Liga titles and two Copa del Rey crowns. He helped Madrid to La Decima in the Champions League final with Atletico Madrid in 2014 and played a crucial role in Los Blancos winning the competition in each of the last three seasons. And the Santiago Bernabeu club thanked the star for all he had done during his time there, adding to their statement: "Real Madrid wants to express its gratitude to a player who has proved to be the best in the world and who has marked one of the brightest times in the history of our club and world football.  "Beyond the conquered titles, the trophies achieved and the triumphs achieved in the playing fields during these 9 years, Cristiano Ronaldo has been an example of dedication, work, responsibility, talent and improvement... For Real Madrid, Cristiano Ronaldo will always be one of the great symbols and a unique reference for the next generations. "Real Madrid will always be your home." Ronaldo, a five-time Ballon d'Or winner, will now have the chance to win a European league title with a third club after completing a shock move to Turin. Madrid, meanwhile, have already denied making bids for Paris Saint-Germain duo Neymar and Kylian Mbappe as they prepare for the 2018-19 season under new coach Julen Lopetegui. The former Spain coach takes over from Zinedine Zidane after the Frenchman surprisingly decided to resign after Madrid beat Liverpool in Kiev.
